Serena Williams shows off her curves on the cover of FITNESS Magazine. Inside the magazine, she talked about loving her curves as well as her body image. The tennis icon also revealed that is took her several years before she learns to accept and love her own skin. What is Serena Williams in private and what is she publicly? Serena said:
“I think of myself as two different people, There’s the Serena Williams that everyone knows: She’s crazy… She can’t make a mistake… And she’s angry and just not nice, to be honest. I’m only that person for three hours a day when I’m on the court. The rest of the time I’m just Serena. I’m the class clown. It’s not the real me. Even for me, it’s shocking to see. But in another way, it’s kind of cool to know that I have everything together on the court, because I don’t really have my life together personally.”
When it comes to her body image and insecurity, she revealed:
“When I was young I thought I should be built more like an athlete -long and lean- not with a womanly figure. But then people my age started coming up to me and saying, ‘I love you because of the way you look.’ That was really motivating. So I learned to be proud of my curves and embrace my large boobs. It’s all about loving who you are and realizing that you’re beautiful.”

According to the No.1 ranked tennis player, her fans helped her in winning the title. She said, “It was like, ‘Oh my gosh, if I can just hang in here and just try to enjoy myself. Honestly the crowd pulled me through. I heard some fans go, ‘Go Serena.’”
Serena was truly grateful to her fans, in fact, after the match, she gave her shoes to one lucky fan. She also posted a photo with her dad with the caption, “With my trainer @mackieshilstone after the match. I gave my fans my shoes! #7″

Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams are battling off-the-court before they even started their match on the court. There were rumors that Maria is dating Serena’s ex-boyfriend, Grigor Dimitrov. When Serena was interviewed by Rolling Stone, she made the following revelation without mentioning Maria’s name:
“There are people who live, breathe and dress tennis. I mean, seriously, give it a rest. She begins every interview with ‘I’m so happy. I’m so lucky’ – it’s so boring. She’s still not going to be invited to the cool parties. And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it.”
During Maria’s press conference last Saturday, she fought back by revealing that Serena is dating a married man, Patrick Mouratoglou, who is also her present coach. She said:
“Obviously I have a tremendous amount of respect for Serena and what she’s achieved on the court. If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids. Talk about other things, but not draw attention to other things. She has so much in her life, many positives, and I think that’s what it should be about.”
On the other hand, Serena’s rumored boyfriend and coach responded by saying:
“I don’t think anything about it (about what Sharapova said). My role is to think about tennis and to help Serena be the best she can be and do what she wants to achieve. I’m just here for tennis.”
There were no comments from Serena yet.
Serena Williams is not only the cover of the latest issue of Essence magazine but she is also the guest editor. This is the third time that Serena became a cover of the Essence and she is perfect for guest editing the magazine since it tackles “body issue,” particularly about promoting black women to “Love Their Body!”
Serena is certainly an expert when it comes to a healthy body. Serena also revealed on the magazine that she owe it to her late sister Tunde who thought her to love her curves. She said:
“It can be a bit weird. Before it was, ‘Serena has a big butt,’ and that was all. Now there are way more people who feel comfortable with themselves and they’re saying, ‘I’m a woman, and this is what I look like.’ I always say, ‘We’re popular now! We’re finally in style!’”
Aside from loving her body, Serena was thankful that she is back in her game now after battling with a pulmonary embolism for about two years. She is now 31 and yet she is still on top shape.
